Are Catholics Getting What They Deserve?

Do Catholics deserve what the Obama administration is doing to them? He has thrown out the First Amendment and usurped the right to tell us what we believe. If He succeeds with his contraception mandate, the Church will never be the same. We will be subject to the whims of whoever occupies the Oval Office. One can only imagine what will come next.
The Fortnight for Freedom is going on now. This is the time designated by the bishops to go to the One who can truly help us, God. Go to church and look around. Where are the crowds? Where are the people praying?
The most powerful weapon we possess is prayer yet I see little evidence that American Catholics are joining the Fortnight for Freedom. We have the same people attending daily mass and joining together to say the rosary. Yet we ignore our greatest weapon.
We have adopted the tactics of the enemy. I see negative email after email but they accomplish nothing. They didn’t stop the president from being elected or roughly half of Catholic from voting for him. We’ve turned to the Republican Party rather than the God who is sovereign. No wonder the president is winning. The only hope for our Church and our country is God, not the Republican Party. We can not depend on the Supreme Court. We will not win by sending negative emails or letters to the editor. Only by prayer can we succeed
Don’t we believe in prayer? Don’t we trust God? Don’t we understand our faith? Or is it that we enjoy complaining? We’d rather sit around complaining than do the most constructive thing we could do, pray?
Your prayers are important. This is not a job only for saints or “holy people”. All of us need to be praying. We have the power in prayer to change the world.
Mark 10:27 says “with God, all things are possible”. Only with God will we succeed. We can not expect to win without prayer. We can not expect to win using the weapons of Satan. Wake up!
